Buy American, Stimulate the Economy

It was my practice to acknowledge contributors, but since the NSA is collecting our every keystroke and spying on us, I cannot tell you that this funny came from my cousin Sharon in California. Did ya get that NSA?

Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another ‘EconomicStimulus’ payment.

 This is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q & A format:

 Q. What is an ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment ?

 A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

 Q.. Where will the government get this money ?

 A. From taxpayers.

 Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?

 A. Only a smidgen of it.

 Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?

 A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

 Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China ?

 A. Shut up.

 Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. Economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

 * If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka .

 * If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.

 * If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or China .

 * If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico ,Honduras and Guatemala ..

 * If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .

 * If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .

 * If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

 Instead, keep the money in America by:

 1) Spending it at yard sales, or

 2) Going to ball games, or

 3) Spending it on prostitutes,

 4) Beer or

 5) Tattoos.

 (These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )

 Conclusion:

Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day !

No need to thank me, I’m just glad I could be of help.

 

Big Brother Now In Your Pocket/Purse?

A Spy In Your Pocket?

A Spy In Your Pocket?

Everyday I review headlines from several news sites to see what is going on. Today, a headline from Rush Limbaugh caught my eye. Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to explore what it is all about. Rush reports that our phone service providers have invaded our privacy with an app. It seems, a law passed in Spring of 2013 mandates that phone service providers downloaded an app that will give us emergency information. I checked my phone immediately and wallah there is was. It seems that now if Obama wants to send me some of his socialist propaganda under the guise of emergency information he can text me his message. Supposedly, the system will tell me if there is a pending tornado bearing down upon my house, or a hurricane is creeping in from the north along the length of Lake Michigan from Mackinaw Island, or the Cook County Forest Preserve is on fire and heading toward Will County thus putting my home in jeopardy. Most likely, it will be our dear president speaking about the virtues of Obama Care and why we have to be  patient with the implementation. Big, complicated 1200 page bills that our elected Representatives did not have the time, energy, nor interest to read before voting take time and a great big bunch of money,(which by the way the Reps forgot to write into the Bill), to carry out. (Sorry, that sentence is the result of two generous pours of Winking Owl).

Check your cell to see if the app has invaded your phone. Click on the link to Rush Limbaugh’s commentary and he will give you instructions for how to go ahead. It’s kind of fun to decide if you really want all the benefits of modern technology in your pocket/purse.

I’m leaving my emergency notification button turned on, I want to see for myself what kind of BS, I mean benefit, this will lead to.

My Flag Flies Everyday

My Flag Flies Everyday

Well I spoiled the day early by watching a video of my beloved ass kissing Senator Dickie Durbin blow acrid fumes out of his communication port.  Now, I will have to work overtime to restore my usual positive smiling grumpy self.

Durbin is warning his Senatorial colleagues not to allow themselves to be drawn into a sucker punch by the protesters at the town hall meetings. He claims the meetings  are loaded with insurance industry agitators. He just showed how out of touch with the constituency this guy and his colleagues are. I have been to three Tea Party Day events, and I can swear that the only people attending are genuine working  folks who are pissed off by the jerks we employ to represent us. Our representatives don’t listen, they spend our money like it is their mandate, and they think we have an unlimited well from which we draw our cash.  The Tea Party people also believe very strongly in a document called the “Constitution.”

 In the meantime, our representatives work their one hundred and fifty days, and complain about working overtime. They vote themselves raises when the rest of us are taking pay cuts to survive. They give themselves a gold plated pension and health care plan for life.  The audacity of their arrogance to  get upset because we balk at their snake oil rhetoric  on the need for rationing health care, or their  advice on end of life decisions. Excuse me, but I already have all of my health care mandates and powers of attorney designated. I didn’t need a trillion dollar plan to make me do it.

Another former senator has called the protestors at the town hall meeting an unruly angry mob; an embarrassment to the United States.  Again, they fail to see the relevancy of what they are witnessing. Yes, we are an angry bunch, but why? Who is the real embarrassment to the country? Not the people who populate it, rather the ivory tower bunch who are  destroying  it.

Here is a simple solution to the health care problem as proposed by some doctors in Joliet.

Most people who are employed, and have health care insurance from the private sector have a lifetime limit of one million dollars in benefits. The USA has forty seven million people without health insurance. Let the government go to the private sector, and buy these uninsured a policy with a million dollar limit like the rest of us have.

A simple idea like that would stimulate the economy through the insurance companies. It evens everyone by giving them health insurance.  Why won’t it work? It won’t work because of the following reasons:

1. There is no money in it for our representatives to graft

2. There is no opportunity by the representatives to control our liberty, instead it gives us freedom.

3. It is too simple an idea for the complex liberal mind to comprehend.

4. The government could not grow with megalithic proportions.

5. What would we do with all the surplus taxes coming in? (Suggestion, pay off the deficit)

6. Our socialist leaders could not buy the votes they need to get into office.

7. A simple solution, such as proposed, would eliminate the army of legislative lawyers who write thousand page bills that take an army of lawyers to read and interpret.

8. A simple solution would be the  real change we could believe in.

9. A solution proposed by doctors is not acceptable. They can’t be smarter than our mind clogged representatives.

10. Big Brother would have to brainwash another generation before they lead us into a dictatorship.
